SPEAKING
``The laws of physics say that a body in motion stays in motion. So if you have two objects meet in the air, the smaller object is going to fall much harder. I've never been the type of player to take anybody out, so I obviously went to the ball. The little guy ran into a brick wall.'' - Shaquille O'Neal after he was ejected for a flagrant foul in Phoenix's victory over Detroit on Sunday night. Detroit's Rodney Stuckey went up for a layup and O'Neal sent him crashing chest-first to the court.
